Seedy Saturday Seed Swap

This month we are excited to announce our first seed swap event. To join in all you have to do is pop down with your spare seeds and exchange them for some different ones.
Seed swaps are free events and are a great opportunity to meet other growers, share local growing knowledge and of course have a good chat. Here at The Mediated Garden, we have been producing our own seeds and will be bringing a selection for exchange. We’ll also be launching our Seed Circle project so if you are interested in growing, seed saving or just want to know more, we would love to meet you.

You can find out more about seed swapping and seed saving here.

What’s on in 2012

Happy New Year to all our followers and supporters. Over the last few months we’ve been busy rifling though the seed catalogues looking for yummy new plants for the garden. To add to our edible flower collection this year we’ll be growing Soko Breadseed Poppies. They are a beautiful white poppy which produce loads of seeds which can be used in baking and because they are non hybrid variety, we will be able to save the seed to swap or sow next year. Speaking of which, we are also planning to hold a seed swap event and start a seed circle, more details to follow. If you are interested knowing more about the seed swap, joining a seed circle or any other aspect of the mediated garden, do get in touch.

Happy Growing!

Seasons Greetings

Video Blogging

We’ve started video blogging and uploading our ramblings to our youtube channel. As part of this we’d like to make the videos as accessible as possible and discovered a new website that allows you to subtitle your online films called www.universalsubtitles.org. So, our partner project tenantspin, the 12-year old community media project which is run as a collaboration between FACT and Arena Housing obliged and set up their own channel on Universal Subtitles and have started to subtitle their own work as well as ours.

It is truly wonderful the internet and the breadth of platforms you can uncover related to every topic and every need. This particular platform is a one very close to our heart as well as a further exploration into our interest in space, place and access.

Have a look at one of our videos here.
